sosfooddriveWhat is this SOS Food drive All About?

  • Child hunger is one of the major issues in McLennan County?
  • It gets worse during the summer when many children are home from school and can’t receive the nutritional meals they received at school?
  • Local food pantries struggle to meet the increased demand for supplemental food, while often experiencing a decrease in food and monetary donations during the summer months?

Come to the aid of these children a number of pantries, with Caritas and Shepherds Heart as lead pantries along with the McLennan County Hunger Coalition are trying to do something about this need.

The 4th annual Spring onto Summer Food Drive will culminate in the collection of non-perishable food on Saturday, April 12th. Collection Points will be open to receive donations 8:00am to 6:00pm at:

  • Wal-Mart Stores in Bellmead, Waco, Hewitt, and Sam’s Club
  • Brookshire’s Food Store, Robinson
  • The IGA, United Super in Hewitt

Christmas Toy Drive

  • Our 2nd Christmas toy drive to provide toys to children who are in Waco ISD that are officially homeless was a huge success.
  • With the help of many individuals whose names we do not know, we provided toys to 409 children. We were over capacity at the Waco Family Y gymnasium where we had a Christmas party for the children. Next year we will need a bigger facility.
